I'll admit, it's a little tough to fit into carry on baggage... but if you put it in first and then pack around it, no problem. Bottom line is it will impress the hell out of hotel maids and airport security (when you whip it out at any available airport power outlet).

I'm sure you've all missed my monthly updates. :p What can I say... I'm a year old now... I just don't have the time... things to do... places to see... know what I'm saying? I mean, don't get me wrong, being shockingly cute and having a great smile is good and all but it's only going to take me so far. I need to get out there, circulate, make connections, plan my future, so I can take care of all these old folks when they stop bringing home the checks. I mean... seriously...

In college, it was a staple of our group of friends... almost required listening whenever visiting the Hansbergers in Los Alamitos Dorm. It still make appearances on my playlists. Found a 'making of' interview..
